Installing libssl-dev via apt-get was the correct thing to do.

It appears that you haven't fully cleaned out your manually compiled
OpenSSL from the system.  Perhaps you did something like "sudo make
install", which places files in various directories like /usr/local seen
here bypassing the distro's package manager.  You'll probably need to
more fully clean this out, or restart with a clean distro install onto
which you wouldn't be "make install"ing stuff globally like that.

Another option could be to reconfigure your distro so that it would no
longer prefer what's in /usr/local over its system directories.  For
libraries, that's specified in /etc/ and /etc/,
after editing which you need to run "ldconfig" for the changes to fully
take effect.  However, this is probably too advanced for you and even if
successful you end up with a system configured differently from how it
was meant by the distro maintainers.
